Asphalt Shingle Marks On Vinyl Siding
« on: September 21, 2017, 05:51:20 PM »
Just had our roof replaced after waiting for months for the roofers to show!

1st day: One adult Hispanic and four 12-14(?) year old male Hispanics.

Could not communicate at all.

Around 9 hours into the job, a leg comes through the master bath ceiling!
Nothing was said about the accident until my better half walked into the bath and started screaming. :scared:

I had to go and get the older guy and 'lead' him to the hole. :mad:

I called the company and the hole was repaired the next day ... all except for me now having to paint the ceiling!

Day Two: Five adult males get to the job at 7am and finish everything by 4pm.

Roof looks great but that leaves the question ... How to get rid of the 'many' asphalt scuff marks that were 'somehow' left over all of my white vinyl siding?? :cursing:

I don't want to scrub the marks because I'm pretty sure that I will then have discoloration in those areas?

I've heard that WD-40 or a citrus cleaner will work?

How about a cleaner like GoJo?

Forget calling the roofing company back, I don't trust them to know what to do!!

I would have stopped the work when only "One adult Hispanic and four 12-14(?) year old male" showed up.   You also should have had a finish date in the contract.  You get what you pay for.  Also I would have some one clean it right and bill the roofing company.  Take a lot of photo.

Yeah, Walks is right. The work should have stopped the first day until a competent crew showed up.

Try plain alcohol for a start. A little bit of rubbing with an alcohol-soaked rag can do wonders.

These threads are nothing more than bait, and I don't know what he's trying to hook, but he never takes party in them, so why even bother?

If you are talking about me, I believe that you are wrong. :scared:

I don't think that there are any posts that I have started that I haven't responded to.

For the past couple of days I have been occupied with important family issues and haven't had the chance to try out the different 'solutions' that have been offered about my scuff problems.

My intention is to get every cleaner/option that was suggested, try them all out and let everyone know the outcome.

Thanks Everyone .. for your responses.

Here's just the front page. I could easily go back further, I also remember having to goad you into responding to some of your threads in the past.

Guilty as Hell!

Out of over 2,000 posts you managed to find a couple that I failed to respond.
(Well, I did respond in the second link but that's beside the point)

For arguments sake .. Let's say that you are able to find 100 posts that I failed to respond to?

That would work out to less than 5%?

How does that stack up against everyone else?
(I'll wait)

Turtle-wax Tar & Bug remover!

Out of all the suggestions .. It works the best for what I needed!

Bill them for the Turtle-wax and your time for cleaning up there job.
And also for the paint and your time.

Like I said, that was just the first page. Here's part of page 2, all of these were your threads.
I saw no reason to dig further.

I can go on if you like, but I think you get the point. If you're going to ask a question, etiquette states you follow up. If you'll note, I enquired as to what computer you finally decided on, but as I stated earlier, you simply don't come back.
I suggest you follow up on some of your old threads before starting new ones, which is why you were called out in the first place, you have a bad habit of ignoring your own threads.
